Community Markets to Offer rBST Free Milk

Community Markets Stores To Offer rBST Free Milk
Beginning February 11, 2008 the Community Market family of stores will only offer rBST hormone-free white milk for it's private label milk. The protein “rBST” is a synthetically developed hormone that is used to supplement a cow's existing supply of naturally occurring hormones. In 1993, the FDA approved the use of artificial growth hormones after reviewing it carefully and concluded it is safe for consumers, for cows and for the environment.
Some consumers, for personal reasons however, prefer to drink milk that is produced without the use of artificial growth hormones. “We listen closely to the needs of our consumers and are proud to offer another delicious, high quality product that is hormone free.” said Eric Anderson, Vice President of Marketing. “We offer organic produce, all natural pork, Amish raised poultry and now rBST free white milk.”
All milk suppliers to Community Markets stores will be audited two to three times annually to insure that each is supplying only rBST free product.
Headquartered in Findlay, Ohio, family owned Fresh Encounter, Inc. the parent company of Community Markets is Ohio’s largest independent grocery retailer; now operating 31 outlets throughout Ohio and Indiana. Fresh Encounter operates supermarkets under the brands of Community Markets, Great Scot Community Markets, Fulmer Community Markets and Sack-N-Save Supermarkets.
